    Read the first two paragraphs, that's enough to show Cincinnati wasn't motivated by Washington DC.

    A few days later, Shafer came back to Muthert asking him to look up how many Tea Party cases had been received, and how many had already been approved. "He told me that Washington, D.C wanted some cases," Muthert said, according tot he transcripts.

    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Bozell: Broadcast Networks 'Allergic to the Truth About the IRS Scandal'.....


    The full press release:

    RESTON, Va. – Yesterday, Judicial Watch released a new batch of IRS documents that showed “extensive pressure on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative leaning organizations.” According to an analysis from the Media Research Center, ABC, CBS, and NBC responded with exactly ZERO seconds of network news coverage. The released documents also revealed the IRS’s handling of the Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s DC headquarters, contrary to initial claims that blamed low-level officials in Cincinnati.

    In the year since the scandal broke, numerous major developments have gone completely unreported by the Big Three. Examples include:

    • On August 2, FoxNews.com reported that House Oversight chairman Darrell Issa had accused acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel of blocking the committee’s investigation. Network coverage: Zero.
    On September 4, CNN’s Drew Griffin reported that documents showed Lerner’s original story blaming low-level employees was a lie.Network coverage: Zero.
    • On September 11, 2013 the Wall Street Journal exhibited how Lerner’s own e-mails implied a liberal political agenda at work. Network coverage: Zero.
    On September 18, 2013, a front-page analysis published by USA Today confirmed the targeting of conservatives. ZERO seconds of coverage.
    At the end of March 2014, the New York Times noted that the House committee was still being frustrated by non-cooperation from the IRS. Network coverage: Zero.
    And, an April 7, 2014 staff report by the House Oversight and Government Reform committee thoroughly demolished what remained of the notion that both sides had been targeted. Network coverage: Zero.
    • Finally on May 7, 2014, The House of Representatives voted to hold disgraced IRS bureaucrat Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Total network coverage? 15 seconds on Good Morning America. Zero on CBS and NBC.

    Pathos suggests it is beyond ones control, which is dubious in this case.

    They know precisely what they are doing and that it is deceitful.

    It matters not what file it is, FFS within the past two weeks there have been posts in here saying Obama never said "if you like your plan...."

    It is the politics of ideologues who no longer value the "right thing" but ""anything that keeps us in power."

    The very essence of what is NOT liberal and what has been the downfall of civilizations since man crawled out of the primoredial ooze and said "gimme da Obamaphone...fool".

    But I have better.....I have Mitchell's Testimony. The one PB said he didn't want to go thru.




    Published on Feb 6, 2014


    Cleta Mitchell told Congress today the IRS is still targeting conservative groups. Mitchell also said the "ongoing" DOJ investigation is a complete sham.

    "I want to make three primary points here. First, the IRS scandal is real. It's not pretend, it's real. Number two, the IRS scandal is not just a bunch of bone-headed bureaucrats in some remote office contrary to what the President of the United States told the American People on Sunday. And, number 3, the IRS scandal is not over. It is continuing to this day. And, the Department of Justice Investigation is a sham. It is a nonexistent investigation.".....snip~

    can a special prosicuter make someone testfy when that person has already plead the 5th?

    and it is harder to convict someone of contempt of congress for simply pleading the fifth.

    It's a step Congress hasn't taken since the McCarthy era, when it tried nine times to hold people in contempt for pleading the Fifth.

    None of the votes have been upheld by the courts, but Republicans said that they had a responsibility to act.
